OS X Mavericks Production Software & Driver Compatibility

OS X Mavericks Production Software & Driver Compatibility

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, OS X Mavericks (10.9) released yesterday, and it’s free. But should you upgrade?

If you’re in production, check this list first to see if your software is compatible. Obviously this list is only current as of 10/23/2013 – I doubt I’ll be proactive enough to come back and update it. And remember, this is just official support – it’s possible your setup will run just fine even without manufacturer blessing. But as always, proceed with caution.
